    Red?

    I hope people like red.
    I had set these aside early in the year and then literally tripped over them today getting something from storage. When I got these from Australia they were not fully dry. I cut a couple in half today and checked the moisture content. 12%, just about ready.

    There are two different types of burl here. Red Morrel and Vasticola. Both are from Western Australia.
    I had forgotten how red they are.

    These are natural red coloring.
    They are still rough and have a sealer coat on them.
    When fine sanded and finished the coloring will range from light red to apple red and some burgundy. Often in the same piece.
    The ones that show the yellow have a bit of sapwood.

    A lot of people use this wood natural without stabilizing.
    Me, I like the insurance that comes with stabilizing. I need the moisture level to be under 10% for stabilizing so it will be a few weeks before I send any in to be done. I might put some on the website and take some to the Boise show for people who prefer natural woods. I haven't made up my mind yet.

    Something I like about having a subforum here is that I can post photos and random thoughts.
    .....and you guys are polite enough to pretend like it is interesting.
    Thanks
